In commenting on this passage, John Owen joyfully wrote:
In [Christ’s] cross were divine holiness and vindictive justice exercised and manifested; and through his triumph, grace and mercy are exerted to the utmost. This is the glory which ravishes the hearts and satiates the souls of them that believe. For what can they desire more, what is farther needful to the rest and composure of their souls, than at one view to behold God eternally well pleased in the declaration of his righteousness and the exercise of his mercy, in order to their salvation? In due apprehensions of this let my soul live; in the faith of this let me die, and let present admiration of this glory make way for the eternal enjoyment of it in it beauty and fullness.
